Night Auditor Interview

Night Auditor

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Hyatt.

Interview Details – Position was had an immediate need to be filled, so took about a week after I applied before I got a call, but then scheduled an interview for the next day and got the job offer the following day. Interview process was fairly straight forward and very pleasant. Interviewed with both AGMs and after going through my qualifications and basic interview, they went over various scenarios and asked me if I was comfortable working in those types of environments and wanted to be sure I would be a good fit – examples included sudden and drastic changes in company policies, guest complaints, driving a large passenger van, preparing food service in middle of night on top of front desk and audit duties.

Interview Question – Do you see yourself as a leader or a follower? Why not the other?   Answer Question

Corporate Intern Interview

Corporate Intern
Chicago, IL

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hyatt in March 2013.

Interview Details – It was different from the standard process because the position was last minute added. There were many applications for the position but it needed to be filled sooner. I had 3 phone interviews with my direct supervisor, the director of the department and the HR corporate recruiter. I didn't have any in-person interviews. The questions were all very standard and the process was very welcoming.

Event Manager Interview

Event Manager
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Hyatt in October 2013.

Interview Details – I got a call from the Director of Human Resources Wednesday October 9, 2013.He left a message. In his message he said "I was following up on the resume you submited, if you can please give me a call..." . About 10 minutes later I called him back and left a voicemail. I called back Thursday and Friday and left a message still no call back. I called back again on Monday, again no call back. Finally on Tuesday October 15, 2013 he finally answers. I tell him my name and that I recieved his voicemail about the open position and he says "I'm sorry we are going with other candidates for this position". This was the most rediculous thing that's ever happened during my job search process. I was completely baffled by the unprofessionalism.

Waiter Interview

Rochester, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hyatt in December 2010.

Interview Details – First interview was easy - had a restaurant supervisor ask the standard questions ( what do you like about serving, what shifts are you available, none too challenging). The department head came out and introduced himself to me briefly. when hired he and one other supervisor called to welcome me to the Hyatt team.

Interview Question – None really. I got the feeling the interviewer was new at it, didn't know what to ask. She did ask what I liked about being a server and how I handled customer complaints.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation for my position, a standard hourly rate. Did accept my restrictions on the schedule (nights only, not available Wednesday)
